FLORESVILLE -- At Cycle Ranch, they said they would come forth with a spectacular nighttime race program second to none and they were true to their word.

The morning broke on a damp track, perfect for a day of exciting and fast-paced racing. During practice you could see riders looking for the fastest lines, moving high and low throwing dirt and mud through the corners and accelerating through the straights looking for that perfect line. It didn’t take long for them to find those lines and for speeds to pick up. The riders were able to drop lap times and get in race mode very quickly.

After practice and the national anthem, it was time to get down and dirty.

The first race was the Open A class. Several pro card holders were among them, including Tyler Livesay and Jacob Blomfield. From the drop of the gate, it was obvious that the night was going to have some fast racing. With engines screaming and dirt flying, the race to the first corner for that much sought after holeshot was exciting to watch. Trying to get all those bikes through such a narrow line one would figure that at least half would go down. It just goes to show the skill of all of the riders because everyone made it through without a hitch.

Once all the riders made the first turn they spread out across the track choosing their favorite line. Some went high, some low, some inside, some outside, each grabbing a handful of throttle trying to put the person next to them behind them, while putting themselves out in front.

Each race after was just as exciting. Each one got faster, lines changed, and berms seemed to move each lap, challenging the riders’ skills to adapt to the ever-changing track conditions. It added even more excitement for the riders, as well as the fans.

As the sun went down and the weather cooled, it seemed to re-energize the riders. The air seemed to come alive as each rider prepared for moto two.
